Hi :) My name is Courtney. I am 21 and a jr. in college. I will be having laproscopic gastric bypass surgery sometime this summer though an exact date has not been set- still getting all my pre-op things taken care of ( psych evaluation, nutritionist visits support groups...) I made the decision about 4 months ago that i wanted to do this. I had started looking into it about a year ago and did a ton of research but wasnt ready to talk to my parents about it yet. When talking to my mom one day she mentioned it and asked if i had ever thought about it. I knew it was my sign and we dove right into finding a surgeon at Vanderbilt.
Even though i played sports and was active, I have always been the heavy girl growing up. But it really got out of control when i was about 16. once i knew it was out of hand i started trying anything i could think of to get it off- nothing worked because of my constant hunger. I truly think that this is going to be my saving grace as a tool to help me reach my goals. I want go to the gym and be able to get through a whole workout. i want to feel good and confident about myself and my future. Most of all, i want to be healthy for my future family. I have been with someone for almost 4 years now and we plan on getting married in the next 2-3 years and starting a family. I want to be able to have a healthy pregnancy and play with my kids. :) I want to be HAPPY.
